Top 6 Most Common Plastic Surgery Procedures in the U.S. …and Why They Might Be Right For You

As plastic surgery grows in popularity, men and women throughout the United States are contributing to the nearly 20 million procedures that are taking place each year. Learn more about the most common plastic surgery procedures in the United States and consider the benefits they may have to offer you!

1. Liposuction

The number one spot for the most popular plastic surgery procedure is reserved for liposuction. There are two types of liposuction available for clients that want to suction fat from specific areas of their body and slim their silhouette: tumescent liposuction and ultrasonic-assisted liposuction.

With the most popular plastic surgery lipo procedure, tumescent liposuction, a patented solution is infused into the body and then suctioned out along with the extra fat in your body. For ultrasonic-assisted liposuction, your fat is first “melted” with ultrasonic energy and then suctioned.

Because liposuction is typically a very quick procedure with virtually no downtime, it is an efficient way for people to shape up and slim down with very little effort. If you’re looking to reshape your body and fight the effects of changing hormones as you age, liposuction could be the solution for you.

2. Blepharoplasty

Another common plastic surgery procedure that is frequently requested is eyelid reshaping. Oftentimes, as people get older, their eyelids and under-eye areas can sag, swell, and wrinkle. Blepharoplasty can completely reshape the area around your eye to remove any skin or swelling that could be obstructing your view as well as rejuvenate the area to create a more youthful appearance.

The results from this procedure look incredibly natural, as Dr. Salameh conducts a personalized consultation with each client before treatment.

3. Breast Augmentation

Whether it’s a breast lift, enlargement, or reduction, breast augmentation is a very common plastic surgery procedure among women. Nearly half a million procedures are conducted every year in America!

Some women choose augmentation to replace a breast after an operation, reduce chronic back pain from overly large breasts, or balance naturally asymmetrical breasts. Other women use this surgery to revitalize their chest after giving birth or to fulfill the dreams of their ideal body. Whatever the reason, Salameh Plastic Surgery has noticed that every woman experiences an increase in confidence and poise after undergoing this procedure with us.

4. Abdominoplasty

Usually called a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty, this is a common plastic surgery procedure that removes excess skin from the stomach area and tightens whatever skin that remains. Most of the time, women who choose this procedure have recently lost a significant amount of weight or have had several pregnancies, wish to get rid of any skin that wasn’t elastic enough to return to its original size.

5. Rhinoplasty

While many people assume that nose jobs hold the title for most popular plastic surgery procedure, it’s actually not nearly as common as you may think. The best surgeons know exactly how to reshape and restructure the nose to balance it with the rest of your face — ensuring a look that’s natural and authentic.

Common reasons people choose rhinoplasty include:

  • Size Reduction
  • Shape Modification
  • Injury Rectification
  • Correction of Birth Defects

6. Forehead Lift

You might already know about the face lift, but did you know about a forehead lift? While a face lift affects everything from your neck and jaw to your eyes and cheeks, a forehead lift is a common plastic surgery procedure that targets just the wrinkles and drooping around the eyebrows, eyes, and temples. It can also minimize deeper furrows between your eyebrows or along your forehead itself to ensure you look younger, more alert, and refreshed all the time.
